The Course of Fire has been posted on the COF page. It is pretty much the same as last time as that seemed ok. See you on Sunday.
Scores on the Results page – Well shot the Reed brothers who zeroed for each other!!
The shoot was fun but it went on a bit and I remembered half way through that I meant to revise it after the last one. So if it took too long and you didn’t have time to stay to the end – blame me. I will overhaul the course of fire and stick to two distances and see how we can make it run a bit quicker.
It will help if you have a zeroed rifle! The principal is ok and seems popular but there is more work to do on the course of fire.
Will try harder.
Reproduced from the NRA Imperial scores book. It may help some of you follow the correct process for recording convertible sighters.
Its going to be hot and I promise there wont be any sand shifting this week.

See you on Sunday
Please see and consider signing this petition – It may help with the current legislation. – Keep updated on this at our Legislation page
Phew what a scorcher!
Actually with fewer numbers we got through faster and stayed largely in the shade. A very pleasant day all round. Some good shooting from the usual suspects and the VZ58 are starting to give the AR15’s a run for their money. I will get mine about right by the time I have to hand it in!
Dont forget to sign the petition and write to your MP. The governments argument for the bans are weak as there have been no crimes and if you think you aren’t affected your turn will come unless you do something. contact your MP using the very good They work for you website.
It really couldn’t be much easier so spare 10 minutes for your sport and your mates.

Well that was a busy day. We got the sand delivered (4 tons) and a number of us got it from the car park to the butts. That was hard enough but we were overwhelmed with offers of support to help get this into place.
Well that wasnt strictly true as I rather press-gang al those present to help shift the stuff up the bank and into place. So apologies about that but we can do the sand job with out a strong contingent so the willingness of members to help move the stuff was really appreciated. There are some jobs we can’t to without everyone helping. We are volunteers and I am most grateful for the support.
It took 20 minutes to shift the sand into place and then get on with the shoot that was pretty busy. I think the exercise whilst being good for us did wear some of us out.
There were however some good scores and it was a good day.
Thanks again for the help. We rely on everyone lending a hand.
See you at the next one that is Service Rifle.
Scores on the Results page. – If there are any errors in the results, blam me I’m Knackered!
The Work Party this weekend is cancelled. It will be in a few weeks when we can get the sand delivered. Watch this space.
Sundays shoot is the above that this year is being shot as a Queens 2. That is to say 2×10 at 3/5/6 TR first detail followed by Scoped etc.
See you then
We have a work party coming up and it may be next weekend but we have yet to finalise the details so keep an eye on the site for an announcement.
Good day and was pretty busy. There was a bit of a delay to get going as we discovered some local wasps had built a nest in the 300 yard junction box. This had to be humanely removed before we could get going (a broom and a foot). No injuries reported. Some good shooting and excellent scores but unfortunately not from the TR contingent! could try harder.
No firm news yet on the proposed work party so keep an eye on the web for news. The Scores are on the results page.
